Are we reaching a proverbial tipping point on the subject of head injuries in minor sports? Callum Darby, of the Hamilton Reps Hockey Club, remembers a lot about his short hockey career. There’s one thing this 14 year old can’t recall: getting a concussion.
More and more evidence is surfacing linking repeated concussions to a degenerative brain disease called chronic traumatic encephalopathy, which causes memory problems, emotional issues, depression, problems with impulse control and may lead to dementia.
Some sports clients like NFL teams, NHL teams and minor sports teams are currently using a system called ImPACT (Immediate Post-Concussion Assessment and Cognitive Testing) and it’s a scientifically validated computerized concussion evaluation system.
